We’ve all been saying it forever now, and now a new voice has joined the chorus saying former secretary of state Hillary Clinton is not fit to be president of the United States, given her mishandling of our nation’s most sensitive information. And, this time, it’s none other than President Barack Obama’s own former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
Call me crazy, but I think this guy might know what he’s talking about in the realm of sensitive information critical to the security of our nation.
And he just declared what to many in the Democrat establishment is unthinkable: Hillary Clinton should step down for the good of the country.
Via The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama’s former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) believes Hillary Clinton should drop out of the presidential race to clear the way for the probe of her private email server by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (Ret.) said he thought the former Secretary of State should leave the Democratic presidential race: ”I think Hillary Clinton, for the good of the country, should step down and let this FBI investigation play out.” On Feb. 2, the FBI filed a letter before U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, confirming the Bureau is actively investigating Clinton’s use of an unsecured, privately owned email server to send and receive official government communications.
Flynn headed the DIA from July 2012 until August 2014 and co-authored a 2010 report that criticized the U.S. intelligence community for failing to pay enough attention to social factors in Afghanistan.
Flynn and other high-ranking former intelligence officials told TheDCNF they are alarmed that some of the nation’s most highly classified documents contained in a secretive program called the Special Access Program (SAP) were transferred to Clinton’s unclassified home server.
The documents “had to be moved off electronically or removed out of the secure site physically, then it had to be put onto an unclassified email system,” Flynn said. “Someone who does this is completely irresponsible, but totally unaccountable and shows a streak of arrogance to the American public that is unworthy of anyone thinking they can run for President of the United States.”
“This is unbelievable,” Flynn said. “I don’t think anybody should be talking about her being potentially the next President of the United States.”
Our thoughts exactly!
Now, what are the chances of the Queen heeding this wisdom? Yeah, riiiight. We all know this is all about HER, not the good of the nation.
No doubt, Hillary and her campaign will try to spin this commentary from another member of Obama’s team as part of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” out to get her.
